Nigerian diocesan program helps widows of Boko Haram victims
Catholic World News - July 07, 2014
The Diocese of Maiduguri, Nigeria, is providing care for more than 2,000 widows whose husbands were victims of Boko Haram terrorism, the Fides news service reports.
Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme said that widows often suffer from neglect or exploitation. So a diocesan program helps them to care for their children and, whenever possible, to achieve independence by starting their own small businesses.
